William Shatner to fly in space
How cool is that, Captain Kirk will fly in space for real, at 90. He will set a new record for the oldest person to fly to space.
Way to go captain!

Well that Blue Origin ride is more like going up on a really big Parachute Jump at Coney Island. It may count as Outer Space, but just barely. Big Grin

Having said that, I sure as heck wouldn't do it, so all the power to Shatner. He sounded like he was really rambling in his speech at the NYCC. Let's just hope he knows where he is when he does it. Wink

All kidding aside, it is cool that he is breaking a space record. Maybe his autograph cards will go up again when he is an official astronaut. Smile

Can you imagine if he were able to get 5 or 10 cards signed during the flight?! That would be the stupid money insert of the millennium!

Shatner was on Shark Week this year. He suited up and dove with a group while tiger sharks swam around them. Tiger sharks are maneaters. That dude is fearless. He's the Evel Knievel of the 21st century!

Truly fearless.

He did it! Cool

Plus a new world record. Not a bad day. Big Grin

Too short for signed cards. Costume cards? Big Grin

Got to hand it to Bezos, he knew the only way to get network coverage for Blue Origin now was to send up Captain Kirk. For his third trip he can give a seat away to Sigourney Weaver, but I think she already said she would do it with Virgin. Who else is there, Elton John? Wink

You could tell that Shatner is going to use this as material for the rest of his life. Everybody wins. Big Grin

George Takei is clearly miffed about the whole thing. No love lost there. Big Grin

Is it a world record when you're miles above the world?

Yeah, remember that Shatner celebrity roast years ago? He arrived on horseback. Takei was there and he exclaimed, "F*** you, and the horse you rode in on."
